Cherryfield Contra Dance

May 20, 2023 , 7:00 pm 10:00 pm

So, please take note!  This time slot is the new home of the Cherryfield Contra Dance, which will forevermore take place on the 3rd Saturday of each month.

And to celebrate the change…..The Cherryfield Academy Community Center is excited to welcome the venerable group Calliope to perform for this inaugural Contra Dance on Saturday, May 20th from 7pm to 10pm!  Hailing from the mid-Coast region David Stimson, Tamora Goltze and John Pranio have each been dazzling crowds of Dancers and Concert Goers with their musicianship for decades.  Pat Danscen will be our caller!  Everyone is welcome to the Dance – all ages, ALL levels on experience!  Spectators curious about Contra Dancing and people who just love great live music are enthusiastically encouraged to come!

There will be a refreshment table with snacks.  Come for the cookies, stay for the Dancing:-)  And a hydration station with pitchers of water and cups will be on hand.  You are most welcome to add to the refreshments, but please try to keep them Covid safe. Masks and sanitizer will be available and their use strongly encouraged. Testing before coming can be extremely helpful. If you are not feeling well, or know you have been seriously exposed to Covid, or any illness, please refrain from coming.

The Cherryfield Academy is located at 53 Main Street just 200 yards north of Route 1 on Route 193.  There is a 10 dollar minimum suggested donation for adults, with children less.  Your financial support is essential for bringing these fine musicians and callers to Cherryfield and for making these events possible, so please support this activity generously!  For more information about the Dance call 546-2998 or email [email protected]  I hope you are well, and loving Springtime, and I hope we get to see you at the Dance!
